Description: Hop aboard our TA Adventure Bus right here in Toronto and sit back and relax as we take you North to Algonquin Park! We’ll spend the day exploring some of the best places to spot moose. In addition we’ll have 2 optional hikes available to 2 scenic lookouts. We will visit The Algonquin Visitor’s Center to check out their nature & art exhibits, grab some food, and check out the view off of their panoramic lookout deck! All of that before heading back to Toronto with a stop at the famous Kawartha Dairy for some Ice Cream (Dairy Free Options Available)!
Moose Spotting Guarantee: We have become really good at spotting moose, so good in fact that if the majority of the people on the bus don’t see a moose on your Moose Spotting Day Trip we’ll give you another trip for free!
About Algonquin Park: Algonquin Park is a Ontario a nature-lover’s paradise: 7,725 km of lakes, rivers, forest, trails, camping, comfortable lodges, 2000 km of canoe routes… It’s also, perhaps the best place in North America to spot moose! There are about 3500 in the park. The best time for spotting them is in May and June, and it’s easiest in the early morning along ‘the Corridor’, a the 56-km stretch of Highway 60 that cuts through the southwest section of the park. The moose often come right to the roadside. Sodium-depleted from the winter months, moose hang around the highway because of the salty water in roadside ditches and marshes (for a moose, a marsh is like a big salad bowl). Salt is deposited in this area each winter during snow removal. Take highway speed warnings seriously. This is a great area for spotting the majestic moose.
